How does Bollywood’s top league buzz about? We tell you about their pet phones.

Hrithik Roshan
Very particular about his pictures that go into publishing, what keeps Hrithik, 37, hooked on to his Blackberry, is his concern for sorting out his portfolio apart from the regular calls, text and Blackberry Messenger (BBM). Currently shooting in Diu, Duggu is using his BB as the only means to stay connected with his closed ones, as well as for professional reasons.

Katrina Kaif
Not really a social animal on the virtual world, Kat uses her phone just for general purposes like calls and text messages apart from her coveted closed grid BBM circle. If that’s not all, the 26-year-old reportedly even switches off her phone before going to bed and switches it on only if she wants to wake up!

Lara Dutta
Lara uses an iPhone 4 for its slick interface, and an interactive touchscreen base. The 33-year-old uses the gadget for everything, whether it is social networking, using apps, or being online. She also uses it for basic functions like messaging or calls, unlike her counterparts who even go to the extent of sometimes reading scripts on their device while on the move.

Kareena Kapoor
A self-confessed gadget junkie like her beau Saif Ali Khan; when not shooting, Bebo, 30, is mostly seen texting on her Blackberry or talking over the phone. Just like the rest of her colleagues, she is too, hooked on to her BB.

Sonam Kapoor
One mobile device is not enough for the 26-year-old, as the actor uses two high-end phones - an iPhone 4 and a Blackberry Torch. The noteworthy thing is that both are in black colour. Texting, calls, Twitter, posting pics on social networking websites - she doesn’t stop at anything to make the best of her devices.

Shah Rukh Khan
He perhaps has almost every luxurious gadget, but Shah Rukh Khan, 45, has always been addicted to the Nokia Communicator. However, he recently switched to the Nokia E7, which is almost like his favourite device. During recent visits to the Capital, he was also spotted using a BB.

Shahid Kapoor
Just like Deepika and Katrina, Sasha, 30, too restricts his phone usage to just calls and messages, along with other regular stuff. But the otherwise not so technically bound actor is hooked on to the Blackberry Messenger (BBM), which keeps him clicking on his Blackberry Torch keypad.

Akshay Kumar
Akki has been using two Nokia E 62 flip phones in grey silver and black colours respectively since quite some time. Apparently, both phones are literally so worn out that the 43-year-old actor is now planning to switch to new ones while shooting for Sajid Khan’s Housefull 2 in the city of London.

Amitabh Bachchan
Unlikely for a 68-year-old, Big B reportedly carries three phones — an iPhone and two Blackberries. A regular at staying connected to his fans, whom he refers to as his ‘Familium Extendum’, through his gadgets, he uses his phones for tweeting, micro as well as audio blogging and what not!

Deepika Padukone
Not a regular at social networking websites like her industry colleagues, Deepika keeps a Blackberry Torch handy for her regular usage like calls, messages and checking e-mails on her phone. Content with a single device, the other thing that keeps her hooked on to her phone is the Blackberry Messenger (BBM).
